So, I always think it's funny when my status as a mixed family gets me street cred with my progressive friends. I suppose it is human nature, but it is like, so racist.
This week has been not as awesome as others. The van got broke and Big A got a ticket in a totally unjust situation, it's five days later and I am still bitter- don't worry, I am trying to let it go. The flu also circled through our family beginning on Monday and hopefully ending this morning. I was SO SICK yesterday, and in so much pain. Thank goodness I feel better this morning, here's hoping I continue to feel well. Tonight is 'girl's night' and man, do I need to have some adult beverages to celebrate Friday. Also, as a side-note, it is AMAZING what a 2.5 year old is capable taking care of while mom is laid out on the couch. Lil' A was a rockstar yesterday.
My SIL wrote her 7 Quick Takes last week on how she/my brother raise and discipline their kids. Their kids are like weirdly awesome, so it was fascinating reading. One of her points was about social/media/gadgets and how they do not allow their kids to use them. I know a lot of people in the Catholic world/blogging world feel very similar. While acknowledging that it definitely works for them, I have very different views on it. I am excited to blog about it next week :) SPOILER ALERT- my 2.5 year old kid is sitting next to me right now with his, 'ipad time', whilst I type this!
So, I am into theme'd projects this week. On Wednesday, with my sickos, we made caterpillars, then read 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar", then made butterflies and then watched a netflix recording of the book. Awesome. And then, yesterday, when I was so sick, we made fish out of construction paper and watched 'Little Nemo'. You see, the tiny projects justify the screen time! :)
|John Paul was captivated by our butterflies|
|nemo shaped apple slices- I know right?!?!|
|Our fish, that we put on sticks, so we could take them 'swimming' SHUT YOUR MOUTH!|

There's this guy named Bryan who I went to college with. We weren't necessarily 'friends' in college, more like smoking acquaintances. Anyway, we connect from time to time on social media and share thoughts. I really wished we lived near each other so we could have a drink or a coffee and solve the world's problems. I think we'd be besties. It makes me feel thankful for the connections we can make through social media.
Sometimes, I want to write my quick takes about my bravo-lebrities....but then, I realize the vast majority of you will have no idea what I am talking about, therefore you will be bored. OR, if you DO know what I am talking about, you will throw large (deserved) stones at my head. So, I will make this brief. I am glad Bethenny's Show was canceled, because I am still not over her leaving Jason.
Whew, I am glad I got that off my chest.
